Kane Brown and his fiancée, Katelyn Jae, caused quite a stir with fans when they posted a Valentine’s Day video on Instagram of them singing the pop song “Issues” by Julia Michaels. They were having a blast with their dog, Rambo, licking Kane’s face during the performance. It was a sweet moment, but also made us realize that Katelyn is one amazing singer.
Kane’s fans agreed, asking, “Why hasn’t she [sung] with him before in a concert?” and “OMG, do a duet already.”
Those fans will be happy to hear that a Kane and Katelyn duet is a definite possibility.
“We have talked about it,” Kane said during a recent media event in Nashville. “She did the artist thing. She loves to sing. She’s got an incredible voice, but she doesn’t want people to think she’s using me to get to music.”
Clearly, Kane’s fans don’t care about any of that. They just want to hear the two of them sing together. Kane has definitely heard them loud and clear.
He added, “ I thought maybe we could throw some surprise on there for the fans on the second album.”
For now, Kane gets a private nightly concert from Katelyn on the karaoke machine at their house.
“She loves singing, so she sings in the living room every night,” Kane says. “I’ll be upstairs playing Xbox trying to be quiet, and all I hear is her downstairs. I’m like, ‘Babe, come on.’”
Katelyn was with Kane at the his big party in Nashville this week celebrating his first No. 1 hit, “What Ifs,” with Lauren Alaina. Kane’s mom and grandmother, who he calls Nana, were in the crowd, too.
Kane paid tribute to his Nana during his remarks at the party, saying, “I feel like she raised me into the man I am today.”
Kane also thanked all the folks that work with him on his career.
He told the crowd, “Thanks to everybody that came out today. I feel like everybody in this room has a familiar face even if I don’t talk to you a lot. I look at y’all as family — another family in Nashville.”
That family included some famous faces. Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard and Brian Kelley were at the party celebrating as the publishers on “What Ifs.”
One of the song’s co-writers, Jordan Schmidt, is signed to FGL’s Tree Vibez Music publishing company. Brian posted this photo with Kane, and it hints they might go on tour together again sometime soon.
Kane also said that having this first taste of success with “What Ifs” has only made him want to keep hustling for more hits.
“I feel like getting a No. 1 was my goal,” Kane said. “It’s just made me even more hungry. So, I’m just going to keep working as hard as I can.”
